§ Mr. John
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, pursuant to his answer of 22 July, what were the numbers of cattle purchased at Kirkby Lonsdale; at what cost; and what was the cost of the work undertaken to try to establish the cause of the cornebacterium pyogenes mastitis problem.
§ Mrs. Fenner
It is not the Ministry's practice to divulge details of individual transactions, which are a matter of commercial confidence. The cost of the work undertaken by the Ministry to try to establish the cause of the disease problems has been £62,000.
